Programme of Speakers 

    Our monthly meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 2.30pm in the Jubilee Centre, Alcester.

    The meetings begin with announcements about interest groups or general matters.  This is followed by the guest speaker and the afternoon concludes with tea/coffee and biscuits.
